In the last two years, Geosciences has published two successful editions of a Special Issue Series dedicated to “Remote Sensing and Geosciences for Archaeology” and “Earth Observation, Remote Sensing and Geoscientific Ground Investigations for Archaeological and Heritage Research”, which have attracted 22 and 15 high-quality peer-review papers, respectively, outlining the state-of-the-art of research in the fields of archaeological remote sensing and geosciences.
Building upon this success, this third edition of the Special Issue Series aims to gather original research articles, reviews, and technical notes, on how Satellite, Aerial, and Ground-Based Remote Sensing techniques (either well established or recently developed) are used alone or in combination by archaeologists, image analysts, practitioners, and private companies to:
- search for buried features and investigate cropmarks;
- understand cultural landscapes and their past use;
- predict the archaeological potential in areas where infrastructure and urban development are planned;
- assess the condition of archaeological records and heritage assets.
Therefore, I would like to invite you to submit articles about your recent work, experimental research or case studies, with respect to the above topic and falling within one of the following domains:
- Archaeological prospection;
- Digital archaelogical fieldwork;
- Condition assessment of heritage assets;
- GIS analysis of spatial settlement patterns in modern landscapes;
- Assessment of natural or human-induced threats to conservation;
- Education and capacity building in EO and RS for archaeology;
I also encourage you to approach me by sending a short abstract outlining the purpose of the research and the principal results obtained, in order to verify at an early stage if the contribution you intend to submit fits with the objectives of the Special Issue.
Dr. Deodato Tapete
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
